In this Issue
Dear PoliceOne Member,

In this month's Communications eNews, read about a citywide camera system that is reducing crime rates in real-time, and check out a Va. police department that is using mobile computing to increase situational awareness.

In recent communications news, an emergency alert that wasn't labeled as a test caused some confusion in N.J., and a N.C. city set to work on a wireless network for police and fire.

By PoliceOne Senior Editor Doug Wyllie

If the ability to communicate with other first responders in your area is at all important to you, please consider taking some manner of action which would let your elected officials know your opinion on the matter.
Some still hopeful

5-45% drop in crime
